1954 Chevrolet Bel
Air Convertible. Pink exterior with Pink/White
I purchased this car in 1989 from a man
in Colorado - it has been in our family for
25 years. I flew with a friend to Colorado and
drove it home to San Diego. I used it as my
daily driver around town in the San Diego area
for several years before undertaking a three
year long frame off restoration which was completed
This car was built to match the Pink and
White car in the 1954 Chevrolet Convertible
Body by Fisher advertisement from the July 1954
edition of the Saturday Evening Post. See: https://www.flickr.com/photos/autohistorian/5720820352/
There are many internet sites with this ad,
and original copies can be purchased on ebay.
The features of the car are:
All original except the color - pink and
white. As far as I know, this color was never
made by Chevrolet.
Options include: power steering, power
brakes, power top, power seat, power windows.
Original automatic headlight dimmer comes with
the car but is not installed. Optional windshield
Full frame off restoration. This car was
completely disassembled by me and then re-assembled
with 3-4 months of professional assistance from
Ron's Auto Body in San Marcos CA.
Two stage epoxy paint color / primer with
polyurethane clear coat. The clear is very thick
and mirror smooth. The body was taken down to
bare metal before painting. All body parts were
stripped and repainted.

Machine work by Wilsons Machine Works in Encinitas
CA. All engine accessories rebuilt. I have always
used Mobil-1 full synthetic oil.

Rebuilt power steering, power brakes.

sandblasted and powder coated.

See attached pictures.
We located the place where the Body by Fisher
ad was photographed in Palm Springs CA and took
a picture there. See above. This is a great
car; truly a piece of Americana. It is a consistent show
winner and is very popular.
It averages about 18 mpg.
Parts are easily obtained and are relatively
inexpensive. I'm talking $15 for a carb rebuild
kit for example.
Please let me know if there
are questions or if you would like to see the
car in person. Contact Erick Cook (503) 332-9208
